The implementation of the National Framework Agreement has resulted in a more harmonised approach to pay across the higher education sector. Benefits differ between the universities (pre-1992 sector) and those polytechnics and colleges that adopted the title of university under the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 (post-1992 sector). However, some benefits, such as sick pay and sick leave, tend to be the same in both sectors.
